The 2016 Régnié “Vieilles Vignes” from Jean-Michel Dupré is an excellent wine, showing off all the sappiness of the vintage and a great base of soil. The bouquet jumps from the glass in a complex mélange of black cherries, pomegranate, espresso, incipient gamebird and a top note of woodsmoke. On the palate the wine is deep, full and very pure on the attack, with a superb core of fruit, tangy acids, excellent focus and grip, impressive transparency and a long, suavely tannic, vibrant and beautifully-balanced finish. This is really an excellent bottle of young Régnié! 2017-2035+.
Lurid ruby. Lively, mineral-accented raspberry and floral aromas show very good clarity and a spicy hint of white pepper. Energetic and focused on the palate, offering gently sweet red berry, spicecake and rose pastille flavors that pick up a touch of smokiness with air. Fine-grained tannins build slowly through the long, nervy finish, where the red fruit and floral notes return. (JR)
